A scout was a starship classification for a support ship. These ships have minimal offensive and defensive capabilities, superb sensors, and are very maneuverable and fast. In the Klingon and Romulan fleets, scouts are equipped with cloaking devices. (ST roleplay module: Narrator's Guide)

In starship classification, a scout is a starship the has a focus towards exploration, mapping, surveillance and reconnaissance. They are usually small with comparatively large warp engines and nacelles. Their more scientific focus also means they are fairly weakly armed.

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

A Scout vessel, or scout starship, was a starship used either for commercial and scientific exploration, or for military intelligence gathering and reconnaissance.

Contents

Civilian scout vessels

Civilian scouts piloted a wide variety of vessels. Some flew ordinary light freighters, while others flew specialized ships designed for reliability, increased sensor ranges, and long trips. Scouts working for large corporations or governments often had new ships with the latest technology, while independent scouts often flew ships which were decades, or even centuries, old.

Examples

Military scout vessels

Military scout vessels were, unsurprisingly, more heavily armed than civilian models. Of course, some civilian scout vessels were military surplus, and some civilian scout vessels were used for military purposes. Some military scout vessels were large enough to be considered capital ships.

Examples

Appearances

  • Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (First mentioned)
  • Ewoks: The Battle for Endor (First appearance)
